Student Led Research
The Democracy and Governance Program has established working projects around Washington, D.C. to offer students the opportunity to provide major institutions with valuable and timely research in the fields of democracy promotion and governance reform. Under the guidance of our world-class professional faculty, students collaborate to produce reports on topics of interest to stakeholders and deliver presentations on their findings to key staff at these institutions. Students who participate in these research groups receive invaluable experience in conducting original analysis for policy-oriented audiences, as well as three credits of coursework towards their degree. More information about these working projects, as well as the reports produced by prior research groups are available below.
